More Tagging tips:
A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?
Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.
If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office.
CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.
Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.
Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary:
Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House.
If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state
Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries
that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

Very, very, good TT.
It kind of bums me out though when your satire sounds exactly like things real people are saying. We are through the looking glass on the gun debate right now But I am confident we'll get to a point when your cartoons on the subject seem like farce again and not so much like documentary.

Not unless he wants to get the NRA to stop pushing their game where you shoot human shaped targets with AK47's as fast as possible. Sure, it "promotes gun safety". And by that they mean you learn how to turn off the safety to fire as quick as you can.
What's wrong with America? I'll tell you. Everything Romney said was pre-chewed wads of cud from Republicans from the last 30 years and yet he managed thru a combination of racism and selling the (false) hope of riches to get 47% of the national vote.

is juuuuust a hair over the top.
On the other hand, the rest of the argumentation is pretty much Poe's law for 2A advocates. The barest tweak would sound exactly like some of the arguments I've heard.

They place their (intellectually bankrupt, emotionally driven, flawed) interpretation of the 2nd above any other consideration, including the welfare of our society. That's got the character of "sociopath" writ large over all of it.
Coupled with their flippant, casual dismissal of gun control advocates as emotive, pansies, irrational, and what have you, I reckon that makes them glib, too.
So they're glib sociopaths. The description fits them like a glove
The pathetic irony is that for all their hooting about how emotions drive the gun control crowd, they're the ones who seem to react so viscerally to the merest suggestion that just maybe the second amendment doesn't grant a complete and universal right to possession of any armament.
by JustinBinFL on Tue Jan 29, 2013 at 10:15:43 AM PST
Sociopathy -- no.
I'm not interested in detailing the characteristics of sociopathy in this now-dead thread. Suffice it to say that short sightedness, narrow vision, and absolutism are not characteristics thereof.

Ronnie Chambers Death: Mother Loses Fourth Child To Gun Violence, 6 Others Killed In Chicago
If white kids were dying at the rate that black kids do because of gun violence, I know that guns would be better controlled

If rich kids were dying at the rate that non-rich kids do because of gun violence....
by filkertom on Mon Jan 28, 2013 at 07:25:48 AM PST
They don't care much about poor whites, or Hispanics, or ...
But then at least some of the gun violence is promulgated by well-off white males. Money does not prevent insanity.

A tear-jerking film who's plot was about a mother who had lost 3 of her 4 sons in the war, and the Army risked many other men in order to find and save him. In real life, the guns are the heroes to be saved.

become so polarized (and is isn't just us- look at Israel, or France, etc.) that "moderate" has become a bad word, even though much of modern liberalism would have been called middle of the road 50 years ago.
As things stand now sane gun policy is unlikely. I have nothing against the 2nd Amendment, but (despite what some people say) it should not be interpreted as absolute or we give up our freedom to walk down the street unmolested without carrying and we look a lot like Somalia. I really don't want to have to enter the grocery store with a semiautomatic so I can safely buy bread and milk. Or have a Uzi on my desk if I'm giving a lecture at the university. This is a gun dealers dream, but it isn't mine.
by Desert Scientist on Mon Jan 28, 2013 at 07:40:24 AM PST
You are absolutely correct, but there's no "somehow" about this. The polarization of American society and politics was the deliberate policy of the Plutocracy, to con voters to support policies that only benefit the super-rich.
by eru on Mon Jan 28, 2013 at 08:56:29 AM PST
gullible to let this happen. The plutocracy is culpable no doubt, but the American public helped, else why would you have Michelle Bachman re-elected? Critical thinking? Hardly!

How many times have I heard the "gun rights" folks claim that if some mass killer hadn't had a gun, he'd just have used something else to accomplish his killing spree. Of course, none of the other weapons would have been nearly as efficient as a gun. But hey, if there were a bunch of people in a hot tub, and you did throw in a toaster, well . . .

This nonsense is not about a person's right to own military weapons.
